marlin vs savage



Log in to see fewer ads
I want to get into a superstock boltie gun and maybe shoot informal sillohuette competetitions, but stay in the "hunter" class... I was wondering what people think between the savage and the marlin bolt actions with the sporter weight barrels... I have a savage that I like with a heavy barrel, but I'm not sure what to do with this new ss idea....

BTW... the rules say "any internal mods are legal"... how does this relate to using aftermarket trigger specifically the one made by rifle basix

I like both and have both. I couldn't say one way or the other.

They both make a fine rifle.

Depending on the model you get, you might be able to buy a savage with the same stock that you have on your BV. That would translate into repeatability and familiarity of the stock fit.

It's fun to have different things though. That is a tough call. I think the Savage might pull in the lead as far as accuracy goes, but only by a fine margin.

You may want to check the guns used to place in the various competitions in Superstock Bolt. Last time I looked I think the Savage placements outnumber the Marlins by about 7:1. And based on the posts in the manufacturer forums, the Marlin popularity has the advantage over the Savages by 3:2.
